For most people outside the construction industry, it is almost impossible to find an objective measure of competency when it comes to choosing a construction company to work with. Luckily, there are a number of reputable accreditation organizations that asses the competency of construction companies, and you can use their accreditation for comparison purposes.

The first step should be ensuring that a construction company has the valid registration papers to legally operate. If a company is hesitant to show proof of valid registration, they are probably operating illegally.

Check if they have CERTASS certification which not only guarantees quality workmanship, but also a commitment to using energy efficient building materials (especially when it comes to windows).

Find out if their engineers are Gas safe registered and if their electricians have NICEK certification.

Finally, check if they have CHAS (Contractor health and safety assessment) and Safe Contractor accreditation. This ensures that they maintain high health and safety standards.

If you are within the Kent area, then you should consider checking out www.jkconstructionsoutheast.com, who have all the above listed certifications. I have used them in the past and consider them one of the best building and construction company Kent.
